ADVERSITY CUP POINTS

For any Adversity Cup race that you finish, you will receive points as follows:
Winners Time in Total Minutes / Your Time in Total Minutes * distance factor + additional points (if applicable)

If you finish a 50 mile race 25th in 9:32:27, we’ll round to the nearest minute, so you’d have a 9:32 (572 Minutes). The winner finished in 7:10 (430 minutes). So, your score is: 430 minutes (winners time)/572 minutes (your time) * 10 (distance factor) = 7.52 points

Using the same example above, if you finished 5th in your gender (instead of 25th), we’ll add 4 points to your total for 11.52 Points

WINNER’S POINTS (awarded by gender)

1st = 20

2nd = 14

3rd = 10

4th = 6

5th = 4

DISTANCE FACTOR POINTS

Half Marathon = 2.62

14, 16, & 17 = 3.2

Marathon = 5.24

50k & 50k+ = 6.4

50mi & 50mi+ = 10

100km = 12.4

Timed Events = Distance Factor for last milestone reached.
If you run 42 miles at Tommyknocker 12-Hour, your last milestone reached was 50km
Your distance factor would be 6.4

VOLUNTEER POINTS

We never forget our invaluable volunteers. For every hour you work at any HPRS Race, 1 point will be added to your total.
